Perhaps: In elevating the skin for a rhinoplasty there is always the issue of good vs bad blood supply. The surgeon would need to access the risk with you in view of your burns.

Not always needed: In a first revision septal or ear cartilage is often sufficient. Rib cartilage may be needed if there is not enough of those materials left. There is a risk of what is called a pneumothorax but it is small. This is when air gets between you lung and your chest wall. Here is a link to revisions done without rib: http://www.Bostonrhinoplastycenter.Com/photos-revision-rhinoplasty/.

Hypertrophic scar: In addition to silicone gel from a medical supply firm, not otc, you might need some steroid injections with triamcinolone.
